Wheel Lathe Launch!

Posted on Monday, 10th December, 2018

Our brand-new Vixen Vertical Wheel Lathe was launched around the world at multiple trade shows in America and Europe in 2018. 

At the Automechanika show, Vixen took along the complete wheel repair package; which consists of the Aqua Wheelblaster and the new Vertical Wheel Lathe.

The Vertical Wheel Lathe has laser probe technology and can scan the original wheel every time, ensuring the highest accuracy and outcome when repairing alloy wheels. The laser scans the wheel in under 30 seconds unlike older models where it will take up to 15-20 minutes.



Vixen’s Wheel Lathe also features a Windows operating system, making it familiar with most operators and touch screen controls so little training is required. With the Vertical Wheel Lathe, you receive two days operator training so you can confidentially work the machine, however as the machine is so easy to use it normally only takes half a day!

The next stop for the Wheel Lathe was in the US at the IMTS Show. After some great demonstrations were given, the machine was sold on the stand! This show was a huge success for Vixen overall, as every machine on the stand was sold by the last day!
